    Phenom II X6

    Welcome to your information source on the Phenom II X6 Thuban.

    Overview:

    The Phenom II X6 codename Thuban is the new flagship processor of AMD, boasting 6 cores and the new Turbo Core technology. This line of processors is a step forward for AMD, bringing competition to the CPU battle arena.

    Specs:




    Max Temp for 1090T & 1055T is: 62C

    Core Codename - Thuban

    * Six AMD K10 cores
    * 45 nm SOI with Immersion Lithography
    * L1 cache: 64 kB + 64 kB (data + instructions) per core
    * L2 cache: 512 kB per core, full-speed
    * L3 cache: 6 MB shared between all cores.
    * Memory controller: dual channel DDR2-1066 MHz (AM2+), dual channel DDR3-1333 (AM3) with unganging option
    * MMX, Extended 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4a, AMD64, Cool'n'Quiet, NX bit, AMD-V
    * Turbo CORE
    * Socket AM2+, Socket AM3, HyperTransport with 1800 to 2000 MHz

    Turbo Core:


    Conceptual Idea


    How it works

    Turbo Core is a performance boosting technology that automatically overclocks active CPU cores. It is automatically enabled and no extra software is required other than bios update or drivers. It only works on AM3 motherboards. The CPU stays within TDP and voltage limits. The boost can be of up to 500MHz depending on model. To stay within TDP limits it basically grabs active cores, for example 3 boost its speed, while the other 3 are underclock, this way it can efficiently overclock the cores you need while staying within TDP limits.

    CPU-Z pics on Idle, light load and heavy load showing Turbo Core changes on CPU.

    Videos of Turbo Core in Action:

    Models:
    Stock Speed/Turbo Core Speed.

    * Phenom II X6 1090T BE: 3.2GHz / 3.6GHz / 125w (400MHz Turbo Core Boost)
    * Phenom II X6 1055T: 2.8GHz / 3.3GHz / 125w, 95w (500MHz TCB)
    -----------
    * Phenom II X6 1075T: 3.0GHz / 3.5GHz / 125w (500MHz TCB) [launch later this year]
    * Phenom II X6 1035T: 2.6GHz / 3.1GHz / 95w (500MHz TCB) [launch later this year]
    * Phenom II X4 960T: 3.0 GHz/ 3.4GHz / 95w (400MHz TCB) [launch later this year]

    Released April 27th 2010!

    Done, at around $230 the 1055T is definitely the bang for the buck. I find Hexa-core for $600+ bucks cheaper than Intel's offering is better any day.

    Also found they already have the 1090T and 1055T for sale already in Spain here and here.

    I don't care who you are, you have to admit that even if the Gulftowns perform better than the Thubans, you could buy a dual socket mobo and run at least two Thubans for the price of one single Gulftown.

    I can't wait for these to be released! I hope one of the 95w versions like the 1035T works in my AM2+ board, but some people are saying the DDR2 IMC might not be there... Oh well, a new 800 series chipset AM3 board would be nice =D

    It probably will with a BIOS update

    How does these chips compare to Intel's line? Does the 965 X4 come anywhere near Intel?

    I know you're just looking for information but, trust me, it's better if you don't ask - at least, not here ...

    The new Phenom II X6 line compete directly with i7 9XX line. For the other question is better if you look here.

    BTW I updated the release date for the Phenom II X6 series. is in the 1st post.

    Don't worry, he was just saying that because that kind of question would turn any thread to an AMD Vs. Intel War and then mods would close the thread. But don't be sorry for asking anything, we're here to help with questions

    Finally! I've been waiting for a cheap six core chip to come out for what seems like forever. These will be perfect for running CFD and multiphysics simulations. Now I just need the cost of memory to come down.

    Thanks.. Been out of the AMD loop for some time, and I really was not sure where they lay in terms of performance.. Did not know that AMD was so far behind... I don't mean this comment to be negative or flaming anyone. That link puts everything into prospective. The CPU chart has all of the Intel on top and when you go further down you start to see a few AMD CPU's...

    I guess at this point we can't compare AMD to Intel, but rather compare AMD to AMD. Since people wanting to go quad may want to switch to a six core for about the same cost...

    AMD is sure priced right... making it a much more cost effective solution.

    Thanks for the info guys!

    I've glanced through a couple of SSD/HDD, uh, "discussions" and the AMD/Intel thing is about as complicated if not more so ...

    To be fair, that chart doesn't include a lot of the latest AMD chips. I'm sure an AMD 6172 12core chip would be able to keep up with some of those i7s and Xeons.
